Download Many customers in the Securities and Capital Markets industry rely on products from Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to obtain solutions for their business needs. These products usually come from different ISVs and they are based on different technologies. Very often, customers are confronted with significant post-purchase deployment and integration costs if they need various ISV products to communicate and exchange data with each other.

Seamless integration that includes a Strategy Execution Management System with grid-enabled trading analytics and enterprise-grade data management was realized using .NET Framework 2.0.
